CORAL CALCIUM by Now Foods is an excellent source of calcium from the warm waters of Okinawa (Japan). Calcium is a predominant mineral in the body, mostly found in the teeth and bones.
Its principal functions are related to bone calcification, muscle contractions, hydro electrolytic balance and the pH of the organism, whilst also acting on the central nervous system.
Amongst its many properties, of note are:
- CORAL CALCIUM strengthens teeth and bones.
- CORAL CALCIUM reduces cholesterol.
- CORAL CALCIUM improves sugar levels as calcium and magnesium permits the production of insulin and ensures it is used to greater effect.
- CORAL CALCIUM prevents Osteoporosis.
Coral Calcium in scientific studies In studies undertaken at 'Kagawa Nutrition University' (Japan), 600mg of Coral Calcium were administered with 300mg of Magnesium (ratio 2:1), after which a significant increase in bone mineral density was verified. This study showed the beneficial effect of coral calcium in combating osteoporosis.
Another study undertaken at the 'Higashi Sapporo Hospital' in Japan verified that by administering a dose of 2,8g of Coral Calcium with Magnesium in a ratio of 2:1 for 3 months, systolic blood pressure (maximum arterial pressure) was reduced, as were levels of cholesterol, increasing the level of high density lipo-proteins (HDL or good cholesterol). Simultaneously, reductions were observed in symptoms such as headaches, heart palpitations and peripheral oedema, with a lessening of anxiety and muscle spasms also observed in some cases.
In a study carried out in 2002, with patients suffering from diabetes mellitus, with a dose of 2,8g/day in a ratio of 15:1 calcium/magnesium, a considerable improvement was appreciated in blood sugar levels, in half of the group studied. This ratio of Calcium and Magnesium improves the production and action of insulin.
Some studies also indicate an anti-cancer element to this mineral. In a study undertaken in mice vaccinated with tumour cells, a reduction of the progression of metastasis was observed. CORAL CALCIUM is free from heavy metals and organic contaminants. CORAL CALCIUM does not contain: artificial colorants, preservatives or flavourings.
